With an increase in commercial and residential construction, bird strikes are a byproduct that is becoming more prevalent. If you have ever seen one, you know how gruesome they can be. These collisions happen a substantial number of times per year across the world and right here in Chicago.

Almost every time a bird hits a window, the impact kills the bird. This might not seem like such a big deal, but these deaths are actually leading to an even more significant issue: as fewer birds are born because of strikes, certain species could become extinct.

Why the Problem of Bird Strikes is Growing in Chicago

The number of housing and commercial structures in Chicago is on the rise, which creates more opportunities for bird-window collisions. Since we can’t halt construction projects to reduce these strikes, we need to find a different solution–one that’s easily attainable: fritted window film.

What is Fritted Window Film?

By using Fritted Films, you can prevent birds from colliding with your windows. These types of films look almost like regular window films but with small patterns embedded in them. The dots or lines are spaced about 2-4 inches apart to create a tight yet nearly invisible pattern. Even though this is not detectable by humans, birds can see it and avoid flying into the window as a result.

Applying a window film solution to the windows of your Chicago structures not only saves birds’ lives but has other benefits as well, such as:

  • Added security
  • UV protection
  • Design and decoration
  • Added window installation
